Here is my pattern! I'm going to have to collect a lot of whit and gray fabrics!
The coneflower is now glued.together. I need to pick blue fabric for the sky, and buy clear thread before proceeding...
wait, I don't see a cornflower on that pattern (two dogs doing eskimo kisses?) wait, pictorial quilting uses glue? As you can tell, i'm confused.
The coneflower is the design the teacher provided, to learn the technique. But we are also learning to take our own photos and make them into designs. This picture is of my dog, and her reflection in the window.Glue is used for two things. 1. Turning the raw edge over so that it won't fray, and 2, glue basting the pieces together. (So you turn all but one edge back, and then glue it to the piece beside it- just 1/4") I probably shouldn't give all the secrets away, since it isn't my technique to share, but I bet you could google "applique glue basting" and find someone who has, without taking the class to learn.I need to get a few more supplies before I proceed with the coneflower, but I'll be getting back to it soon.
Ah, the glue is for basting. that makes a lot of sense. Thanksthat's awesome that you are turning your own pictures into a pattern. Do you use a program for that? is it part of the class?
It is tracing, and then altering the line drawing.She covers best practices in the class, but I suppose you could do it lots of different ways.
